Million Dollar Bars

By February 26, 2013

Follow me on:

Million Dollar Bars are my knockoff version of the 100 Grand candy bar. A luscious strip of caramel is coated with a mixture of chocolate and rice crispies for a crunchy, chewy treat. I would like to tell you that I made my own caramel filling for these bars, right after I arranged several bouquets of fresh-picked flowers for my drawing room and right before I created a paper mache sculpture for the foyer. But the truth is, sometimes I need to cut some corners and save some time (who doesn't?) so I used a block of caramel that I purchased in bulk.

If you'd like to make your own caramel for this recipe, you won't be sorry--homemade caramel is always, always better than anything you can buy. I have a list of my 10 favorite caramel recipes here to get you started. But, if you're a little crunched for time, definitely use pre-made caramel--no shame in that game! If you buy a block, all you need to do is cut it into the right sized pieces. If you buy individually wrapped pieces, unwrap them, microwave them with a spoonful of milk or cream, then pour them into a pan to set into a block before cutting. Easy peasy, and the resulting candy bars will taste like--wait for it--a million dollars.

Hi, I’m having trouble when I try to print your receipes. For some reason, I
cannot get the receipe to fit onto my paper. The sentences run off the paper
and I loose 3-4 words at the end of each sentence. I have tried the sizing shown on my couputer, but, nothing happens.

Has anyone else had this problem, and how was it fixed? Thanks for any
help. Connie
